Model, actor, and TV host Victor Basa swears he does not use too many products for his skin. He has no daily cosmetic regimen, he said, because he considers them harmful to the environment.
If ever he needs to use these products, he said he will choose eco-friendly ones.
"I'm just a keen and avid supporter because I really believe in eco-friendly products na hindi nakaka-ano sa environment," Victor told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the launch of One Naturales at SM Makati on August 19.
Even though he's a popular model, Victor said he only uses the most essential products.
"Ano lang, sabon, shampoo, ligo lang. Minsan I get the medicine from my derma," he said. "And it's good kasi sa guys naman, you can't really use so much stuff e. I mean hindi naman ako nagko-conditioner, shampoo lang, so shampoo lang ang nagustuhan ko."
Victor explained why he likes One Naturales, a cosmetic line featuring eco-friendly products.
"Kasi it's less... kumbaga, there's less waste. And even the packaging is easily recyclable kaysa yung mga plastic. Di ba, remember what happened to, I don't want to bring it up again, but a lot of the drainage were very clogged because of all these wrappers, packaging," he said.
He added that caring for the environment means caring for people as well, including oneself.
"Dati kasi pag may trash ka, buksan mo bintana mo, tapon mo," he said. "Hindi e, kasi feeling ko hindi maganda, hindi maayos. Your respect for the environment shows your respect for yourself and other people. E hindi naman ako disrespectful sa aking kapwa."
